4. Overwrite from Performance Data Variable

Description:

The variable PerfDataMemAddr was used to hold the address of a buffer for performance data, and this variable could be arbitrarily modified by runtime software. This could cause firmware to corrupt its own code/data.

Recommendation:

This is addressed by EDK2 SVN https://sourceforge.net/p/edk2/code/14386.
